Elfab good under pressure

Bursting discs are used widely throughout the process industries. Designed to burst at a specific pressure, they help to prevent potentially dangerous over/under pressurisation.

Current legislation calls for the instant detection of such pressure scenarios, and a system from Elfab, designed for use with its Posi-Vac-Guard bursting guard, uses a built-in sensing element to send a signal to process control systems the instant a disc ruptures.

The sensing element allows the disc to be used in many types of potentially explosive atmospheres and does not require `fit for work’ recertification after each operation.
